Since I started my academic career I contributed to the publication of research papers in several fields and with different roles.

ROLE. To aid reviewing my scientific contributions, I used a coded system to facilitate understanding my role in each paper. In papers related to population responses to environmental changes, I had a relevant role (main author, below indicated as [MA]) in manuscript writing, complete or partial data collection, and analysis, and I may or may not be the corresponding author ([CA]). In these papers I usually stimulate my graduate students to write the first draft of the paper and I let them be the first author. In papers related to animal behaviour and physiology my contributions were in the formulation of hypotheses and in data analysis and manuscript editing (Hypothesis and Data Analysis, [HDA]). In contributions on mathematics and information technology applications, I not only provided expertise and data on the biological problem, but I also contributed to the development of the technology or of the analytical procedure, e.g. development of software and algorithms (Content Expert and Application, [CEA]). In the publications on biomedical research, my contribution was in the design of experiments, data analysis, and writing of material and methods, and results sections (Experimental design and Data Analysis, [EDA]).

AUTHORSHIP. I stimulate my students to write the first manuscript draft after having discussed the objectives, key results and discussion with me. If they provide me a complete draft, despite the amount of revision work needed for having a paper acceptable for submission, I let them be the first author and I position myself as last author, keeping the corresponding author role (CA in the list provided in the Main contributions box). When my contribution is major, I use the notation ‘equally contributed to the paper’ for the student and myself. I tend to include among the authors all the people whose contribution was significant in terms of development of the project and research hypotheses, data collection and analysis, and of writing of the manuscript.

See below the list of publications of submitted, accepted and published papers. When available, journal impact factor (2011) and rank in the subject category are reported (e.g. 6.41; 3/70 INF DIS). In bold are reported the graduate students, in bold underlined the undergraduate students (at the time of submission).
